Today is Vietnamese New Year

January 22 is Vietnamese New Year
Today is Tet, the most important holiday of the year in Vietnamese culture. Chúc mừng năm mới, or a happy new year to all who are celebrating today!

The Lunar New Year in Vietnam is celebrated with visits to family, the honoring of ancestors, and huge amounts of food. Let’s be honest. They had us at the mention of food. Whether it’s sticky rice cakes, dishes with braised pork, or candied fruits, there’s sure to be an abundance of delightful treats. Also, no one cleans their house on Tet because they don’t want to sweep the good luck away for the new year. Lots of food and no housework? Count us in!

To celebrate the new year alongside our friends in Vietnam today, we are recommending three sapphic books written by authors of Vietnamese ancestry.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
